Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., spoke Feb. 11 as House impeachment managers continued to present evidence for why the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.
DeGette laid out how Trump’s actions “incited the insurrection on Jan. 6 and may lead to further violence” during the impeachment trial. Listing extremist threats posted to social media, DeGette said, “Unless we take action, the violence is only just beginning.”
